Jacobsen names 5 to start in opener Unity wins 2 openers by Andy Miedema The Unity Christian Knights opened the basketball season by picking up a pair of overtime wins. Oil Friday night the Knights downed the Hawks from Remsen St. Mnry's, 78-76, after the teams were knotted 74 apiece at the end of regulation play. Then they came right back on Tuesday to nip the Indians from Western by a G3-G1 margin In overtime, after a !5G deadlock. Both games were played away so the Knights are look- Ine forward to next week Tuesday night when they host the Le Mars Gehelen Jays In the friendlier surroundings of the M-OC gym. Tip-off time for the J-V is 6:45. At Remsen last Friday it was a see-saw battle all the way with the teams tied on occasions and the lead changing hands no less then seven times. The Kniphts spurted ahead at first but the Hawks overtook them towards the end of the first quarter and the lead bounced from one to the other during the entire first half. The teams were tied at 18 apiece after the first quarter and again at 38 each at the half. The Knights trailed nearly the entire second half—at one time by seven points, 54-47— but they never gave up. Finally, with Just over a minute left to play, Dan Plulm potted one from the side to tie the score at 74 each, .and neither team could score again before lime ran out. In the overtime, Mark De Vrles put In a shot from the side and Dan Plulm added a :arry-up seconds later while Remsen was getting Just a field goal by Tony Weller, and the Knights hung on for the win. Mark De Vrles paced the Knights with 17 pointsbutfour other men were In double figures. Pluim had 15, Harley Broek 13, Ted Hengeveld 11, and Bob Hubers 10. Jim Klein paced the Hawks with 23 points, and he was "hot" from the outside. Tony Weller added 20 and Jaminet 17. The Knights won the battle of the boards by a whopping 49-24 margin, and this made all the difference. Harley Broek captured 19 of his team's total. The Unity J-V also came home victorious but only after ^ real tussle. They topped the Little Hawks by a 69-56 margin and were led by Paul Kroeze with 22 and "jumping Jack" Lou Wynia who pushed In 20. The game on Tuesday night at Dordt was just as exciting but was viewed by more.eyes. The game was not particularly weel-played. In fact, it resembled more a cross between hockey, football, soccer, rugby and (oh yes) basketball. But when the smoke had cleared and the last whistle had sounded, the Knights had picked up their second victory of the season, even If it was a shaky one. The Knights actually won the game at the free throw line where they sank 27 of 50 free throws while their Indian friends from the mother school were notching 25 of 52. There were a total of 55 fouls called with 27 of those against the Knights and 28 against the Indians. The Unity team led through the latter stages of the first half and enjoyed a lead of nine points at the half, 33-24. But those Indians were appa- ently refueled at the half, for they came out with their tomahawks a-flashlng and overtook the Knights with just 1:21 showing on the clock in the third quarter. Then it was their turn to lead, and they ended the quarter on top by one, 44-43. The Knights fell behind by as much as six points In the fourth quarter, and even the early loss of Greg Jeltema on fouls, as well as Harley Broek and Dan Pluim in the latter stages of this frame, failed to dampen their spirits. Led by the spirited and aggresive Ted Hengeveld, the Knights fought back from a 56-50 deficit with a minute to play to tie the score. The equalizer came by Ed Katie after he faked out (Continued on page 9) Korver gives 35 letters to 71 squad Northwestern Red Raiders football team won their first Tri-State Championshipwitha 6-3 record in the Conference. .Coach Larry Korver gave 35 letters to his team.

Caoch Don Jacobsen of the Northwestern Red Raiders named his starting five for the season's basketball opener ft- galnst Wayne State on Nov. 24th In the Northwestern Auditorium. Gregg Bosch, 6'3»* senior from Steen, Minn,;Roger Kempers, 6'2" junior from Sioux Center and Jim Woudstra, 6'6" (center) sophomore from Orange City are Unity varsity, JV's scrimmage By Andy Miedema (Editor's note: This storywas Intended for last week's Issue. A breakdown of typesetting machines forced postponing Its appearance 0 Unity fans had a preview of what to expect this season when coaches Rick Vander Berg and Glen Voss conducted an open practice this past Saturday night at the M-OC gym. The practice, which included conditioningdrills, ball handling drills, and running of offensive and defensive patterns, was concluded with a scrimmage between the varsity and junior varsity squads. The Knights have high hopes of improving on their 5-13 record of last season, since four .of the starters from last year are back. Missing Is Roger Addink, 6'4" forward who Is now a basketball aspirant at Dordt College. Also missing is coach Mike Phelps who has returned to the land of his nativity (Michigan) where he is coaching at Hamilton. ' Rick Vander Berg, a familiar face in the Orange City area, is back to do the coaching, after spending one year at South Dakota State in pursuit of his Master's-degree. Coach Vander Berg thus gets to work with the young men with whom he started his coaching career three years ago. Returning starters are, seniors, Greg Jeltema, Bob Hubers and Dan Pluim, and one junior, Harley Broek. Also on hand from last year are Mark De Vries, a young man who saw perhaps as much action as the starters, Kim Dooye- . ma, and Steve De Groot. Junior who are making theirpre- sence felt are Ed Katje, Keith Huizenga, Ted Hengeveld (also, a letterman), Randy Droog,,4 and Ron De Groot. ' ' Glen Vos will be coaching the Junior Varsity, and he has a goodly array of talent on hand. Vos, in his second year of teaching, is able to start a front line that averages 6'4", and that's not bad for sophomores. Dan Broek, who measures 6'frj", mans the center slot and may be joined by Randy Jeltema (6*3"), Doug Van Hofwegen, a 6'3" freshman, Paul Kroeze, ahus- tling 6' guard, Earl Woudstra, Neil Van Schouwen and Louie Wynia. Also on hand as replacements are Brian De Jong, Joey Van Schouwen, Dennis Bomgaars, Paul De Young and Wes Jeltema. •Last year the Knights top- forwards with Dave Aalbers, 5»10" junior from Alton and Tom Estes, 5'10" Junior from Aurella, guards, Gregg Bosch, a left handed , player, has been the Raiders leading scorer for the hst two years and set the school scoring record last season, Bosch should give a young squad needed leadership. Doing an excellent Job In reserve last season was Roger Kemper, and he has taken the spot vacated by Jerry Van Es who graduated In June, Roger is the only new starter on the team. Jim Woudstra, who has great desire and hustle, Is quick for the pivot position. As Northwestern's center last season, Jim set the school rebound record. Dave Aalbers has proved to be a good defensive player with great hustle and Tom Estes Is quick. He too Is a fine defensive ball player. Jacobsen says, "The first game Is going to be tough because they also have 4 or 5 returning lettermen. Scouting reports have it that Wayne State is a much better bak- ketball team then they were last year when we played them." Northwestern took that game 75-57. "I'm real pleased with the progress we've made so far, though. We're ready for the first ball game—both pysl- cally and mentally." "In terms of bench strength we're going to have more depth then we had In the past because of experience young players gained last year," Jacobsen continues. "Forwards, Harry Vander Pol, sophomore from Newkirk; Dave Sikma, sophomore from Momince, Illionois and Jim Townsend, senior from Chicago—the whole second unit, including Bob Vermeer for Sioux Center and Glenn Bouma from Orange City, look good." Jacobsen says, "As far as conditioning, we're ahead of last year's pace at this time, and we don't play a conference game until Jan. 14th. The games leading up to the conference should help prepare us for conference play because it's the toughest pre-conference schedule we've played since I've been here." Don Jacobsen is in his third year at Northwestern as Director of Athletics and head basketball and golf coach.
